Deconstructed pogos with pork and apple from Quebec

Fall is upon us, the leaves are changing colors and the cold is quietly setting in. What better way to enjoy this season than to go pick apples and cook them! To end its collaboration with the FMG in style, the St-Estèphe invites you to reinvent the classic pogo by adding a fruity touch. Here’s how to prepare deconstructed pogos with pork and apples from Quebec. All the proposed ingredients are available at IGA Extra Famille Charles.

250 ml (1 cup) cornmeal

15 ml (1 tsp.) Baking powder
